Sean Conway is a multiple world record breaking ultra endurance athlete. In 2011 Sean had nothing to his name after selling his photography business for £1 with a dream of cycling around the world. Sean was in a severe accident on that round the world cycle whereby he got run over, suffering a fractured spine. Determined not to give up he continued to cycle another 12,000 miles around the world. A decade on from that bike ride Sean didn’t give up on his dream of pushing boundaries and he now has multiple world records to his name and is considered to be one of the most accomplished ultra endurance athletes of his generation.
Sean famously broke the world record for completing 105 ironmans in 105 days. A feat no other human on the planet has ever done. He was also the first person to swim the length of Britain, is the only person to have completed a length of Britain triathlon, has completed the world's longest triathlon of 4200 miles, and has the world record for the fastest self supported cycle across Europe navigating 1600 miles of Ukraine and Russian roads in the process. He’s also cycled around the world, run a marathon in every UK national park, completed a triathlon around Wales and is the founder of the global running challenge called The 496 Challenge.
